Our mission at Gathering Place Resort & Lodge is to create an environment in the tranquility of the
Wisconsin outdoors where families and friends can gather and build memories.
Nestled in the deep-green forests of Wisconsin, our unique
23-acre family resort on the shore of Red Cedar Lake makes the perfect setting for your next family vacation.
Our six comfortable cabins vary in size to house individuals, small or large families or even multiple families, and each features a picturesque view of lovely Red Cedar Lake.
Water activities at Gathering Place Resort & Lodge include canoeing, kayaking, paddle boating, fishing, relaxing on a pontoon boat and swimming at our clean beach,
which slopes gently to a safe diving depth at our swimming raft.
If you prefer dry land, we provide a sport court for badminton, pickleball, four square or to shoot baskets.
Want more adventurous activity? Our area offers an abundance of hiking, biking, mountain biking and ATV trails, as well as golfing, shopping and dining opportunities.
At Gathering Place Resort & Lodge, we have the distinct advantage of being located at the intersection of four wonderful counties in Northwest Wisconsin. Each of these counties has a unique flavor and allow our guests to explore both the Central Plain and Northern Highland geographic regions of Wisconsin.
Washburn County, to our northwest, and Barron County, to our southwest, are in the Central Plain Region of Wisconsin. The Central Plain Region is primarily a hardwood forest of maple, birch, and aspen, but there are several areas of prairie as well as cranberry bogs and sandstone buttes scattered across the region. The plain is occasionally broken by rolling hills throughout its western half.
The Northern Highland region is colloquially referred to as "up north" and contains Rusk County located to the Southeast of the resort and Swayer County to the Northeast. The Northern Highland region was once a mountain range similar to the Alps or Rocky Mountains but over hundreds of millions of years, these mountains have been worn and flattened out by erosion and glaciation. Most of the Northern Highland is covered in woodlands with Sugar Maple and Aspen, as well as Red and White Pine.
It’s never too early to plan your next lake vacation at Gathering Place Resort & Lodge. Join owners Mike and Deanna Hessling in an environment meant for relaxation.
